View Full Version : Vitessa
Some photos taken with my Vitessa
Welcome Gene M !:) you can simply cut&paste the link directly and it will be automatically shortened if it's too long to fit the text box, this way
I think there's a FAQ somewhere around. Also the 'post reply' button will give you more options than the quick text box alone.
Btw I've been reading and enjoying your threads on the classic camera forum at PN, and love the found film stories, thanks for visiting the RFF ! :D
your vitessa is terribly sexy, and your pics are very good too. If I had not already too many cameras...
I have read this elsewhere: Be very careful when advancing the film with the lens focussed closer than 4'. The internal mechanism can apparently jam on the focus wheel's internals.
I have the Vitessa N with its F3.5 Skopar, and a Vitessa T with its interchangeable lens. The folders are beautiful, but I wish Voigtlander had made the RF easier to calibrate!
welcome gene, so glad you have come for a visit.
i hope you return often as i too have enjoyed your posts.
Some folks certainly know how to make a Retina IIIc owner green with envy. The photography is first rate as well.
Dumb question: Was that Velvia or print film that you were using?
Also, I'm looking forward to whatever treasures you can get out of your Spectator Flash! ;)
wow Gene, that vitessa is indeed sexy looking! I did not meet her so far, thanks for the link (to Oscar too, heheh)
And the pics are great too.
Solinar: if you look carefully, there's written "Kodak Max 400 film" :)
Hey, i've found one on the 'bay! Is it exactly like yours, Gene?
Yes, it's like mine. Even has the push on cold shoe.
Tempting... esp. after the photos you took with it... :(
I'd be cautious about the "little scratch." Any optical imperfection will decrease the value greatly. It still will take wonderful photos but its resell value will be impacted. If you're truly interested get a money back guarantee.
Welcome to the forum Gene and I too loved your "found film" threads over in photo.net. :)
Looks like you live in Massachusetts! If you haven't seen In the Vernacular: Everyday Photographs (http://www.bu.edu/art/webPages/mainPage.html) at the BU Art Gallery it is worth a visit!
